World-class smallmouth

When was the last time, or any time for that matter, that you saw four 5-pound smallmouth bass in one photo? Jason Brenic and Mike Roux.

The title of this article will no doubt cause some controversy across the land. One angler’s definition of “world class” is likely very different from another’s.  

However, I will go out on a limb and say a 5-pound brown bass will make any good fisherman sit up and take notice.

This 5-pound barrier is rarely broken and when it is, there is cause for celebration. 

If you happen to be on a fishing trip and you get to touch a 5-pound-plus smallie three or four times a day, that is remarkable.  

I had just such a trip this fall.
